|Prophecy Sun - Bird Curious [pan065] - Prophecy Sun|
Prophecy Sun recorded this most recent collection of material almost entirely in her living room using an iPhone, with the exception of one track which was recorded while riding her bicycle. Each song was captured live in one take. The compositions focus on the voice as a symbol of the unconscious, capturing the immediacy of emotive textures and sounds that live inside her head. Her rhythms are of day dreams, future visions, and lost love serenades.

The listener is guided through evolving imaginary landscapes where the gray area between synthesized sounds and their natural counterparts is explored. Electronic gestures and polyrhythms harmonize with field recordings of the bustling cities, temples and rainforests of Southeast Asia.

|Jeff Morton & Darcy Jean - Western Mourning [pan071] - Jeff Morton, Darcy Jean|
A dreamy cowboy and cowgirl soundtrack, with an idiosyncratic live sound and a relentless delay pedal effect countered by an overbearing diatonicism that goes just far enough to push through to an epic 80s movie montage reference. Heartbreaking at times, and playfully silly at others, it is low-fidelity honesty. A white key preference that's all grit and stubborn prairie intention. Western Mourning is a one-time musical event in its entirety.

Descent is the continuation of Akumu's study of resonances and micro-sonics found in our everyday world. Based on field recordings captured within train stations, banks and other large buildings, these four pieces re-synthesize and reduce those grand structures into the infinitesimal -- the real into the abstract. The result is an imaginary "molecular soundtrack" for the residents and travelers of these spaces...
